I ended up going for another 25 min walk in the evening. I don't seem to have a problem with the motivation for exercise. I do it every day and just have got used to it I suppose. I sort of figure if I stop then my muscles will turn to more fat again!!! My biggest problem is what I eat. I have no will power for that. And even walking for well over an hour a day doesn't do enough to consume the calories I have eaten. I also look at my exercise time as a time to be by myself and think about things. When I worked it was great as I could work out how to word clauses in contracts etc, without someone interrupting me. Thing was getting home and remembering what great words I had come up with!!! We are getting a pool in a few weeks, just an above ground one, and I am hoping to be able to swim for 30 mins or so at least once a day, as well as do my walking as I have been. At least I can swim when it is hot. It was really hot yesterday, even when I went in the morning for my 50 min walk, and it probably wasn't wise. I would like to get one of those eliptical machines as well. They look like fun. But I don't know if I will get one yet. Just having a think about it. As for motivation Natalie.......hhhhmmm I don't know. I spose you could start counting the kms you do and you could say to yourself, once I get to 100kms or whatever, then I can go out and buy something I would really like. Facials or manicures etc, always work well as treats. But it could even be see a movie or whatever. I've thought about counting my kms walking and writing it down and once I get to 300kms(the distance to Perth from here) then I can make a shopping trip to Perth!!! But I haven't done that yet as I don't need the extra push to get me to exercise at the moment. Once I start dwindling, probably in winter, I might do that.
